People Advocating Recovery in Northern Kentucky (NKY PAR) will be organizing the first of many syringe cleanup efforts beginning in Covington on Sunday 5/4/14, from 1-3pm. Our goal is to safely remove, map, and dispose of the infected needles that are littering our streets, playgrounds, and neighborhoods.
We will meet outside of the main entrance to the Kenton County Building at 303 Court Ave., and will branch out into the community from there. We are working with limited resources and greatly appreciate any support from our partnering organizations, community leaders, and neighbors.
Needed items of interest:
- Empty laundry detergent containers (to be used as SHARPS containers)
- Thick rubber gloves
- Extension grabbers
- Jumbo permanent markers
- Super glue
- First aid kits like these and these.
- Infectious biohazard spill kits and clean up kits like these
- Safety training resources
If you or your agency is able and willing to participate by donating time, safety training resources, supplies, or support of any kind, please feel free to contact me personally, or join us this Sunday.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
